A Celebration of Ronn’s life will be (opening fishing weekend) Saturday, May 6, 2023, at the Lake Tomahawk Community Building from 1:00pm to 7:00pm.

For years, the riverbank was where

Your soul felt most at peace

Your heart was most content when there

With the fish and the geese

But then, your spirit came to rest

Where angels chose to roam

And once equipped with ten pound test

You made yourself at home.

The sky became your deep blue sea

The clouds became your shore

And there, for all eternity

You sat with friends galore

Each angel was a fisherman

Who had traded his pole

For golden wings and a game plan

At Heaven’s Fishing Hole.

The tales you told about each catch

Its stature and its girth

Will live in memories unmatched

As days pass here on earth

Until we meet again, one day

Upon God’s golden sand

We’ll picture you, no other way

Than with a pole in hand.
